Abstract: Churches that reproduce themselves fulfill God's mission to see the kingdom of God extend to all peoples through the propagation of the gospel. The multiplication of the local church is initiated in the heart of God. Historical movements that have emphasized the multiplication of new churches have led to the emergence of a twenty-first century approach to church planting. Significant ingredients of churches that plant churches and the formation of a model to exercise these ingredients led a small church towards expeditious church planting. This church serves as a model for both large and small churches to reproduce and multiply.
